Getting it “Write”
We tried a case for a national bank that was trying to enforce a personal guaranty of a substantial corporate debt. In response to the guarantor's defense that it was not her signature on the guaranty, we presented handwriting analysis testimony by a former Oregon State Police forensic handwriting expert. The court held the guarantor liable. It found that, even though the signature in question was anomalous, it did match the guarantor's signature on a sample of checks she admitted having written.
